insisted that the president had indeed found the best in chuck hagel, john brennan, and senator kerry and that as the president looks to fill these other positions, finding the best is what will guide him. wolf? >> the president also has an important visit with the afghan president hamid karzai. what do they hope to accomplish? >> reporter: that's right, wolf. they will have a bilateral meeting. you can already see the flag of afghanistan flying over the blair house. that is where he will be staying while here in washington. we're told by white house aides that they will be talking about security, political and the economic transition. that, of course, is very key as the u.s. looks to 2014 to withdrawing from afghanistan. they will be talking about what the u.s. footprint will look like in afghanistan after 2014. they will have their bilateral meeting and also a working lunch and then a joint press conference, wolf. >> we'll be watching that. thanks very much, dan lothian. >>> all right. this just coming in to "the situation room." new photos of a retired fbi agent who's been mi

moving the goal posts on them. yes, there will be opposition. for chuck hagel, no. i believe in the end jack lew will get confirmed. but i'll tell you this, the reason the white house put off the announcement of jack lew until tomorrow is because of the fiscal cliff. they didn't want it to get involved in the negotiations for the fiscal cliff. they felt that they already had a fight on their hands. they didn't want to add any fuel to the fire on that, which is why they've held off of the nomination until this week. they do expect him to get confirmed and so do i. >> john kerry, secretary of state. we've got a lot of white males, shall we say, chuck hagel, we have pictures up there. jack lew, eric holder is over at the justice department. he's not a white male. he's an african-american. but no women. >> men. men. >> i want to put up another picture of the seen yr staff, if you will. there you you he sue the staff. there's been mur muring that there's not enough women part of this white house, the inner circle. what are folks saying about that? >> the visual you just showed with the f

chuck hagel to be the secretary of defense? why did he decide to fight for jack lew to be secretary of treasury. he didn't fight for susan rice to be the secretary of state. >> that's a good question and i have been stunned to your point and gloria's question about the number of democratic women inside and outside the administration at very high levels that i've heard from today basically saying, you go girl, thank you for writing that column. i think valley jarrett clearly is, if not the most influential, one of the most influential women in the administration. at the same time, there is definitely a sense that this is -- that it's a boy's club, that the president is the head of. and women do feel excluded. >> they did release another picture today. a very different picture showing the staff. let's show our viewers. the picture they released today because it shows a lot of women in that picture the other day in the new york times picture. we saw a whole bunch of guys. >> where the girls are. right there in the oval office. >> of course they drk wolf. the other picture that they had

and i suppose it is, is it right for chuck hagel to be there each and every day who has espoused something based on what the pastor was saying. >> the difference is, jamal, that chuck hagel apologized for the views he expressed nearly 20 years ago and the statement today from reverend giglio, he said neither i or our team feels it best serves the current message and goals that we're seeking to accomplish to be a fight and issue and withdraw my acceptance of the invitation. >> if the pastor had apologized, do you think that would have made it go away? i suspect he still would have been chased from being there for the inaugural. >> i'm not -- >> having said that. >> i'm not sure that's true, ari. i think one of the ways that we're going to move past this issue is for people who have views that maybe now they reflect a different view. coming out and saying i regret those views or i've changed my position or we need to have a broader understanding, something that moves us past their past views, people in the administration will focus on these issues of human trafficking and slavery,

obama appointing or picking former senator chuck hagel to be his next secretary of the defense, it's widely speculated that a more aggressive drawdown is something that hagel may favor as well. but it's sort of unclear, wolf, what it means for the final number of u.s. troops that will remain in afghanistan. we know that white house officials are talking about somewhere between 0 and 9,000 troops but one of the things that was really interesting, listening to this press conference today. >> we didn't hear the presidents talk about there being no u.s. troops. in fact, the finding of common ground on immunity for u.s. troops and afghan soldiers and who will be in control of overseeing them seem to indicate that they have found some common ground on key sticking points and the take away there is likely there are going to be u.s. troops in afghanistan beyond 2014. >> the only thing they have to work out is how many. it looks like you're right. thanks very much, brianna, for that. >>> the date is now set for president obama's state of the union address. following tradition, the house

wrong? chuck hagel did, too, in these circumstances. it's a topic worth discussing but needs to be discussed in every direction, not just one. tolerance needs to be taught and practiced by all. >> i think that's -- you know, i've got to say that's the sort of thinking by republicans that, seriously, gets in the way. as opposed to attacking, you know, clearly there's issues with the republican party and minorities in this country. >> it's a one-way street. >> a false equivalence about democrats and evangelicals that makes me scratch my head. taking in what colin powell has to say, look at the election results and don't attack him. he could be the leading voice for republicans on this and the leading voice for -- >> you've said that before. you've said that before. >> all right, guys. >> i don't now you can equate that with attacking colin powell when it's reflecting on the wholer issue of toll trans. it does not just asupppply in o direction. >> all right. chelsea clinton wrote a piece about the inauguration day she's heading up. my father reminded us of what king once called the mo
